Has anyone noticed that there is pretty much no news on the occupation?
The only place I've heard of it at all is on EvC. Apparently in Canada a bunch of American whackos with guns isn't news.

Until the shooting starts.
It's getting to be as boring as basketball though. You can't single out any one basket/shooting. Only the overall score is worth noticing.

There are still hundreds of armed wackaloons in Burns and the surrounding area. Will they stand down?
My guess is that they'll be only too eager to use any excuse to declare a "moral victory" and run away.

If we're paying for the protection and repair of our land with our taxes then what are our user fees for?
Taxes are for the good of everybody. User fees are for the good of the users. If you get more use, you pay more.

We don't charge user fees for public highways and schools....
Sure we do. There are toll roads, toll bridges, etc. We "tax" gasoline, which is a form of user fee. Schools charge users for "extras" like art supplies. Etc.
